Description 

directly above Red Tail Lower. all the Red Tail walls seemed popular during my stay but i wouldnt say crowded. rock type is of course gneiss and the quality seemed good if not great. there are small rocks on the ledge (as ledges usually do) and you should be careful not to send them down as again Red Tail Lower is a popular spot.

Getting There 

can access this area by climbing a Red Tail Lower climb or by walking up far left side.

Featured Route For Red Tail Upper

The Right Cheek 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  North America : Canada : ... : Red Tail Upper
This route sits two routes right of Assholes of August, but starts on August and traverses right to a nice, long, technical face that rewards those who love small crimps. Clip your belayer in, and solo up the start of August (or bring a hand sized cam or two and long runners) for 10', then traverse right on a good edge for your feet to the first bolt. Instead of heading straight up (10d), surf out right and follow the next bolt line to a good anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
